Creation of New Charities
A main decision when forming a new charitable organisation is to establish the formation and legal structure. There are four main types of charity structure:
- Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO)
- Charitable Company (limited by guarantee)
- Unincorporated association
The type of structure will affect how the charity will operate. If a charity structure is a corproate body, generally its trustees aren't personally liable for what it does. If the charity is unincorporated then the trustees are personally liable and there are other restrictions and guidelines that must be followed.
We provide tailored advice to your organisation and can advise on the best steps to take.
